I've cleared out four times now and know I'm not done! I hope it doesn't interrupt watching the Olympia. Oh yeah, by the way, my man Kai Greene is gonna take it.

    Just gonna do 30min cardio and an ab circuit for a bit.

    Calories= 2150. 160g fats, 142g protein, 25g carbs (I had an apple)

    Gave her a good birthday. Magic Mike style. Out way too late last night. Good group of people but I should have expected that if the guy inviting me is gay 90% of the males there would be too. Whatever, odds were in my favor and it worked out just fine.

  5. Working midnight to four today. Here's part 2. Took hyper t2 a little before my 4egg breakfast and I'm feeling the thermogenics wow. I haven't used somethig like this in a while and forgot the kind of effects it gives off. 2 am, 1 in the afternoon but I probably won't do the second dose today because I'm trying to be asleep by 1700. No training today. Fasted all night, now try to get through the day.

  6. Going midnight Monday till four PM wasn't too bad. I had time Sunday to rest and reserve energy to be up all night. Wasn't busy at work so not much running around. I resisted urges to eat and fasted till my normal feeding routine. Even the day shift wasn't so busy so it worked out.

    Last night is what killed me. Now only on a collective 5 hours of sleep and working another midnight shift...and its busy. Overstimmed, underslept, underfed, you could argue underweight, overtired.... I had a hard time functioning and very dazed out. I was thinking about it: this is so bad for patients! Do you know how many people in hospitals work two jobs?! A lot of em two full time! After 10 hours of any one task your ability to perform is inevitably inhibited yet I know people who work 7 days a week 12-16 hours. Some pull 24 hour shifts. I'm scared to be a patient in hospitals.

    Monday they helped me so much. Sitting in front of a microscope wasn't easy to keep awake and its not like I can have coffee hanging around a lab. Much easier to step out and pop some black cats.

  10. I have a new client just for legs. Well, I'm taking over split responsibility for his off season. Killed him. It got me revved up to blast through shoulders on minimum sleep.

    Started Hyper T2 today. I'm.gonna dose Fat Free staggered so I know what each is doing and not get overdone. Also on my way for fasted bloodwork now.

  11. Note: don't take Fat Free and Hyper T2 together. Staggered works much better. I felt weird and kind of sickly, too much at once. Fat Free on awakening, Hyper T2 mid morning, Another Fat Free around lunch, Hyper T2 before training. This should be perfection on shedding off the extra midsection I'm still holding. At this point its just subcutaneous stubborn spots.

    Now its my turn to hit legs. I'm taking my shake before workout now. Makes RPM waaayy more effective and mentally I feel better with the easy amino acid stream.

  12. I have a new client for leg days. Well, he's one of my other teammates/trainers in my usual gym but he's trying to get his legs up this off season as he wants to compete. my trainer gave him to me to blast his quads 2x a week. Ohhh this kids gonna die. It's cool to workout with him though, I'll post pictures - he's got a great upper body but legs are soft. I like having an actual lifting partner for my leg days now.

    Tomorrow is hamstring and back... Hmmm, deadlifts anyone?

    I miss my training partner from when I first started lifting. I was 100 pounds and he was 190. Pushed me every time. Would even go as far as saying he would drop the weight on me if i didn't complete my last reps lol. It was awesome.
    Good luck with your new partner.

  14. I like having a trainer but I love having a lifting partner. I haven't really had someone to train with since I was in college and he was they guy who got me into bdoybuilding. It's a good feeling.

    Yes it is. He basically thought me everything I know. Every time I did something wrong he would correct me. He once got me to curl 40lb for 6 times when I thought 25 was my max. I have NEVER been able to curl 40lb again with perfect form. He would always get on my ass for having bad form. Hmmm I wonder if he still trains at the old gym I used to go. The new place I'm moving to is a block and a half away from that old gym. Going to go there next week after I'm done moving to see if he still workouts out there.

    Yep. A good lifting-partner is indispensible in the gym!

  17. Hey King, awesome work with you're old coach and maybe you can link up with him. As a general rule of thumb I rarely spend more than a year or two with a given trainer - nothing particularly against them just everyone has new thing to teach me and may have something of a different approach to consider. Same goes for lifting partners. It's like dating... but less homo... I think... Nevermind.

    YES!!!!! NO MORE CABR DEPLETION!!

    Now entering the T-30 days alert. 35 to be exact. I'm fed up with this keto, I'm experiencing all the negatives associated with high fat diets:
    Restless sleep, diuretic, brain fog, quick gas lack, getting kind of irritable, acetone breath... It's time to end this. It really hit me today when I go to grab a pen off the floor and get woozy standing straight again. Low electrolytes.

    Going to reintroduce carbs somewhat slowly, only 100-150 grabs on training days. Need to assess response before cycling through them with high/low carb days. So here's what has been designed:
    Calories Protein Carbs Fat
    MEAL 1 2tbsp natural peanut butter 200 7 6 16
    1/4c quinoa 172 6 31 3
    MEAL 2 2oz walnuts 400 10 8 40
    MEAL 3 4oz chicken breast 90 20 0 2
    1oz almonds 170 6 6 15
    1c spinach 10 1 0 2
    MEAL 4 1/2c brown rice 215 10 35 4
    1oz coconut shred 100 1 4 10
    MEAL 5 2scoops whey 240 48 6 3
    2 scoops Karbolyn 64 0 16 0
    MEAL 6 6oz chicken breast 135 30 0 2
    1/2c brown rice 215 10 35 4
    1c steamed vegetables 38 5 6 0
    TOTALS 2049 154 153 101

    BMR = 1732, BEE at moderate level (1.55x) = 2684, a 20% deficit on training days would be 2150. I'm allowing 100 cals wiggle room for error. I don't want too much insulin stimulation just yet so only carb protein combinations surrounding workouts. Rest days = 1650, carbs <30g.

    ROCKED quads today. I feel a lot better after sleeping a lot last night and replenishing sodium and potassium via sea salt. I'm adding it in slowly noticing the diuretic and ketogenic occurances flushed my electrolytes too much. Explains a lot, stupid me for not thinking of it soon.

    Really loving 3Z for sleep - wasnt my magic pill for the overnight shifts but it helped me get back on track today. Hyper T2 is a great thyroid supp - havent had thermogenic feeling like that in a while. It does pair well with Fat Free if you stagger dosage. RPM should hit harder with the preworkout shake. CANT WAIT! Certainly going to see more fullness and better performance out of NeoVar now with more carb intake. I'll take it morning and post workout instead of pre/post.

    Going to start taking in more of the little helpes: VitaminC 5g/daily (1,000 with 5 meals), ALCAR, 2g additional Biotin

    And lets get HGHUp in the mix!!!

    lol It's like protein. I like woman like I like my protein. They have to smell good and they have to taste good.

  19. I like my women the way I like my protein: smooth with chocolate flavor and easy to get mixed.

  20. I feel so much better with just 130g carbs. It's amazing. Still not getting pumps or real explosive workouts but the quality has improved dramatically. I'm separating carbs from protein with the exception of pre/post meals because I'm trying to ease back into insulin responsiveness. I'll probably stick around 150g carbs through Monday and see what comes about. I'm expecting slight weight gain but will take caliper measurements to confirm where its coming from.

  21. Hit back and triceps today for maybe 10% higher weight than I have been doing and closer to the high end of my 12-15 rep ranges. Biceps HEAVY tomorrow then rest Sunday. Cardio in AM after my first meal. With that being said I'm thinking to change the fat source to coconut oil... yeah. Makes sense.

    I'm debating on going back to NJ tomorrow to visit the family. The hard part is packing for 2 days of food because they eat like typical Americans.

  23. Yo howwedo, someone jacked your AM login and replaced your picture with this huge beast of a man.... wait, WOW!!!

    You make me feel like I need to hit biceps and abs today after cardio. F*ck it Im going.

    Switched out the peanut butter for coconut oil in oatmeal. Should make better for energy expenditure on both sides of the coin.
